Product Description

Product Description

I will ship by EMS or SAL items in stock in Japan. It is approximately 7-14days on delivery date. You wholeheartedly support customers as satisfactory. Thank you for you seeing it.


Electro Bamako is dead-centre cutting-edge world music, being an eclectic and uncompromising combination of African and Euro-American performing traditions. So you get the African melodies and words, that wonderful rhythmic lilt that the West African states are so adept at, plus the studio production techniques and improvisatory practices of Urban Western man circa 2000. Just reading the musician credits tells it own revealing story about this particular combination of elements: vocals, guitars, balafon, n'goni, cello, piano, saxophone, trumpet, bass and treatments are just a selection of the full line-up. Mamani Keita has a voice and a method of delivery that does justice to her family's status in African music, while Marc Minelli produces convincing musical backdrops for her to perform within. The rhythms are hypnotising, the texture of the music sensuous but beautifully patterned and coloured. The album can be enjoyed on many different listening levels and in equally diverse audio environments, though it's best heard loud. The long and informative booklet notes are all in French, by the way. --Keith Shadwick

I found out about this album while zapping television stations. There was a French show reviewing new books, movies, music - the first few bars of this album were played and they stopped me in my (remote control) tracks. Original, swingy, jazzy and just downright good, this is a wonderful combination of French jazz with African sensibilities. Great summer music, party music, driving music and most of all, great listening. It would be a pity if the market for this music were to remain limited to France.

4.0 out of 5 stars Skillful mix of African and European pop styles 16 May 2003
By DJ Joe Sixpack - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
A canny world-beat interweaving of West African pop and jazz-tinged, tres, tres Euro electronica. Keita's high, keening vocals -- pure Mali -- cut through the tightly-wound, somewhat fastidious arrangements in a manner that makes the whole project mesh together better than one might imagine. This album is very much a creature of programming-heavy modern studio production, but it has a certain soulfulness and innovative breadth that makes it sound original and appealing. I find it a little too slick, yet also an album that wins me over the more I listen to it... worth checking out!

5.0 out of 5 stars One bite & you are hooked 3 Nov. 2003
By MR WT MAKHATHINI - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I just listened to this cd from my local shop & from the 1st track I couldn't get enough of this music.It's filled with a jazzy piano, soulful African guitar sound, balafon, Malian drums,etc. It's beautiful but the marketing is on Mamani keita's voice, i haven't heard an African voice in a jazzy set up like this cd.Her vocals keep that traditional feel & blend so well with the morden instruments.The cd may be too "morden" for some people who prefer the traditional instruments only but the truth is this cd is unbeivable good with morden & traditional instruments.The percussion also may be too much for the music itself but that is a cherry on cream esp. for rock fans.This cd is dynamic and will take you by surprise in a way U never expected.Also recommended is Soukuba Bambino-Kasse cd.The previous reviewer has said enough & i won't say more.
5.0 out of 5 stars Finally Found It 25 Jun. 2014
By Bookmaven - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have been looking for this album for almost 10 years! Technology is so wonderful. I will never forget the first time I heard this album. I bought the album at the original Borders store in Ann Arbor, right before people stop buying CDs and books at book stores...I bought this album after listening to it with the wonky music kiosks scattered throughout the store.

I generally enjoy the blend of African and Black American music styles, and this album is no exception. It blends the quintessential Malian string and percussion instruments, with Jazz, techno, reggae and some hip-hop like mixing. I LOVE the 'Street Car Named Desire' reference.

I don't have many, well, actually ANY technical terms to use as the other posters, but it's good music. I love it. I think you will too. Buy the album.
